The 7-year-old actress recently propelled to fame by her appearance in "Avengers: Endgame" is fighting back against cyberbullies.
Lexi Rabe, who played Tony Stark’s daughter Morgan, says she "messes up sometimes" and sometimes acts "silly" because she is just a child.
"Please don’t bully my family, or me," Rabe asked in a video posted on her official Instagram page, which is managed by her parents. The caption for the video references the stresses and pressures of a busy career in Hollywood.
"I hate that we even have to post this. But yet again, Lexi’s getting bullied," Rabe’s mother, Jessica, wrote in the video caption. "Please keep your opinions to yourself so Lexi can grow up in the free world. She’s a normal human being and she’s a child. We give her a talking and we give her timeouts, but we don’t do that in public."
"Sometimes we’re rushing from place to place, stressed like everyone else to get to set on time or work, or whatever, and we seem a little grumpy. I'm sorry if you see us this way, but that’s life!" the caption read.
The video had hundreds of thousands of views within just a few days of being published.
"You just remember your parents love you and the people who really know you, love your goofy side, your brace side and even when you mess up,” one fan commented. "You’re such an incredibly talented and strong girl! Online bullies are just wasting their time trying to tear you down," another fan wrote.
The video preceded a picture of Lexi’s "Avengers" father, Robert Downey Jr., with the caption, "Stay off our page if you’re a bully!"
